I need a paycheck
enough for clothing and groceries
a chance to pay the rent 
maybe get up off my hands and knees
Id like to buy
brand new health care too
its pretty far down
on my list of things to do

How bout a roof
maybe walls and a door
not these sheets of cardboard 
I dont want to live outside anymore
Its fine to worry 
if your produce is organic
the lack food in our bellies
is a real subject of panic

Economic divide - its not that important
Kardashian bride - its not that important
theres pressure to conform
to all these social reforms
the papers say political plans have been made
but Im afraid - its not that important

We try to make it
survive another night
this street is like a war zone
and your internet comments seem trite
we dive for cover
while you rage about the blue and red
somebody calls you a nazi
not puts a bullet in your head

The doctors cant say
why these headaches persist
another test, another lab
one more sobering checklist
so forgive me if Im not 
invested in your cause
guess my mind is distracted
running from deaths claws
